 The clip at 1:51 is bullsh!t. Why is it funny to smoke out some guy climbing? Why is it included?

 So true for MTB, however, roadies like it why else would they ride on the road?
  • + 38
 It's not funny - the fail is on the vehicle. Get that piece of crap off the road! Poor guys lungs must have been burning.
  • + 91
 Fail of the week goes to the PB editor that put that in.
  • + 9
 It's a train isn't it? Riding up next to the track and not stopping to let the train pass is def a fail.
  • + 11
 Now let's find some videos of men in pickups waving guns at riders and running them off the road. Hilarious!
  • + 35
 Anyone who "rolls coal" has seriously failed in life...

 Dropping in!

 Coal rollers might see this video and think we MTBers like that shit. They likely won't read the comments and realize we don't. @Pinkbike repost that video and take this part out.
  • + 18
 @number44: to me it looks like the shuttle bus in the Redwoods in Rotorua
  • + 4
 @anianmilan: Me too. Certainly looks like Moerangi Road or Tawa Road. Those buses are awfully old...I imagine the piston rings are a tad gone! I've always worried about their brakes....
  • + 9
 It’s from Rotorua last year. Old video just brought back to get the online chatter going
  • + 3
 @preach: Sorta makes it funny if it's from a mountain bike race. I've had smoky vehicles pass me, you just have to hold your breathe for a little and you'll miss the worst of it. That's what bicycle riding is like full time if you live in some Chinese cities.
  • + 3
 Yeah that is definitely not coal rolling, that was either a wore out old engine passing a lot of oil or an old mechanical naturally aspirated diesel at altitude pumping out a bunch of extra fuel. Coal rollers should be at the bottom of the ocean.
  • + 3
 @handynzl: yep. Looks like it's the first bit of hill road. I usually pedal up during summer and the buses choke me up, not generally that bad. I reckon that one might not have made it to the top
  • + 1
 One of Southstar Shuttles vintage buses. Not normally that bad
  • + 1
 Exactly the same thing I thought, shouldn't have included it
  • + 70
 This is by far my favorite video series!

I have one tiny suggestion... if you could make the last few seconds or so a generic splash screen instead of a fail video segment then the suggested video pop ups won’t block the screen! Thanks!
  • + 4
 They do that because if someone watches right to the end of a video, the YouTube algorithm is more likely to suggest the video to more viewers.
  • + 9
 They could also post the video on this little site called pinkbike.com, which has no advertisements
  • + 6
 My thoughts exactly. One of the gnarliest crashes of this week gets obscured by suggestions.
  • + 36
 rolling coal on someone pedaling up.. wack.
  • + 3
 Indeed whack...looks like that bus was poorly maintained as hell, it was blowin smoke the whole way up that hill. Anyone rolling coal on my while I'm on my commuter gets a U-lock through their side mirror.
  • + 22
 Rolling coal is just fucking shite in general, but this is a new low. Well done PB for glorifying wankery
  • + 5
 @timbud: Who the F would downvote your comment? If you are a biker and you like rolling coal you are indeed an A+ wanker. Sorry.
  • + 0
 There's a difference between unintentional and intentionally rolling coal. Most people on here don't even know how or why it happens, how to prevent it, tuning, air/fuel ratio, timing, etc etc. My car and truck are both diesels. I would never intentionally get under the turbo to do that to someone. It's a d*ckhead move and gives every diesel driver a bad name. But, whatever vehicle that was did have some major issues. That's just overfueling at its finest right there.

With that being said, Ima grab some popcorn and sit back and watch the diesel hater comments come in.
  • + 3
 @krashDH85: Not got anything against diesel cars or drivers matey... just the pathetic cretins that fiddle with them to pump out shit
  • + 2
 @timbud: Believe me, if it's done intentionally, it's done in bad taste. That vehicle had something seriously wrong with it. Shouldn't be constantly puttin' out like a train. Whatever it is needs to be sidelined and have an overhaul. Before and even after it passed the rider it was still smoking. It's not like the driver lit him up just as he was going by. I'm backing the driver on this one and saying it wasn't their fault, but it's the unfortunate nature of the mechanical issues that rig is/was having.
  • + 3
 Yes, I'm aware it wasn't intentional in this case. Rolleyes
What was intentional was its inclusion in this video... hence my original comment.
  • + 1
 @mnorris122: I guess this video made a good argument for ebikes.... Clip should not have been included. Bad taste.
  • + 3
 @timbud: word of the day "wankery"
  • + 1
 @krashDH85: Yep, that's just one seriously poor running/maintained vehicle.
The greyish color of the smoke tells a whole lot and the RPM's are way to low for intentional "Rollin' Coal.
When the phallic heads intentionally do it you'll usually hear the engine rev high, tubro whine and produce very black smoke.

I'll join ya on the sideline from here on out, I'll bring some Trail Mix and adult beverages.

I think someone at PB was bored so they included it just to watch the Forum go boom....

 @timbud: But this a fail! It has every right to be in the video of fails! Regardless which side you are looking at it from.
  • + 1
 It might be a fail, But this is PinkBike... not Jalopnik Wink
  • + 1
 Make Coal Great Again!
  • + 20
 HYPED to be the thumbnail of this reel! Shout out to Carrabassett Valley, Maine, where we get to crash our fat bikes on well maintained single track trails all winter.
  • + 3
 Came here to laugh at fatbikes annnnd....turns out I don't know shit! You guys were having a pretty sweet winter shred there.
  • + 20
 Why do people with no jumping technique, like myself, attempt jumps they are in no way qualified to do? I just don't get it, but i like to watch it.
Kuurrrrwa!
  • + 6
 That guy wins for the best "R" roll.
  • + 1
 @MtbSince84: I knew somebody will like itSmile But every polyglot will find something interesting. We had kurrrrwa, we also had scheiiisssseeee
  • + 13
 They all have many things in common:
1-they ride bikes
2- they crashed
3-they're all stiff as a brick
  • + 4
 All the dead sailors
  • + 7
 Did the last guy pull the rear brake when his front wheel already went off the drop? It looked like it was going fine, but then.....
  • + 2
 I thought the same thing.
  • + 3
 Front wheel off... check and initiating front flip...
  • + 8
 He used his ass as a brake, got too low and touched the rear wheel.
  • + 5
 It’s the classical butt on the rear tire move. There’s a video of a giro who does that on a 2 meter drop..
  • + 2
 @5-9-A2: Yep, he used his Tain't Brake and turned himself into a lawn dart.

Lots of Dead Sailors too. The guy on the Fat Bike in the Snow looks like they never got their wazoo off the saddle. He gets bucked into a classic Flyin' W even before he goes off the hard pack which finishes him off.
A couple of good examples of how not to use the front brake too.

I think my favorite is the Border Collie doing the "Hey man, what are you doing down there? Why did you Stop? Let's Go, Go, Go" routine. Gotta love a good BC. Superman to face plant was pretty good watching too.

 Sssssssssssscheisse

 It's good that these come out on Friday... every week, sitting at my desk, through the week I slowly build up the brain courage to go ride Captain Highgrinder, then on Friday I watch this video and think better of it. I believe it's how I stay out of these videos. Thanks Pinkbike!
  • + 8
 Nice R-roll on the Ku-rrrrrrrrwa at 1:05. Hilarious!
  • + 7
 One thing I learned from Friday fails. Y'all need to do more pushups
  • + 1
 Chap on the snowy fatbike crash took it seriously and he squeezed one just after landing
  • + 4
 That fatbike OTB when your front tire goes off the edge of the groom. Been there, seen it happen to some very skilled riders.
  • + 5
 Blue Trails people. Stick to 'em!
  • + 2
 People should learn how to manual and jump properly before hitting big jumps
  • + 1
 time to officially change the name of this to:

"at least my frames carbon..."
"but my helmet matches my knee pads, and I those ceramic bearings though..."

Still 1000000% convince this represents the skillset of about 92.45522% of the "Pro, I need this shock, that geometry, etc, etc, etc, etc..." that is PinkBike comments.
  • + 4
 Why does yelling "Dropping" always result in hitting a tree or face plant?
  • + 1
 More wrecks people. Pinkbike is scraping the bottom of the peanut butter jar now.
Agree'd that smokeout was f*cked up, but the one right that with the taco wheel was classic. Camera guy: "Heh"
  • + 4
 Lotta recycling going on w PB fails these days
  • + 1
 Are ones in the snow from Silver Star ? It snowed there a day before opening day, I hope it's all gone heading there tomorrow.
  • + 2
 One of them is Carrabassett Valley, Maine. Don't know about the other(s).
  • + 2
 Cringing with poor fellow at 1:24. Concussion at the least, Spinal Compression Fracture at the worst
  • + 2
 Loved the dog running back to go dude are you OK?...After just hitting a tree.
  • + 2
 1:58 hey I finally made it on Friday Fails! I was just craving some tacos...

 That shit is funny when they cuss in a different language
  • + 1
 45sec did he say "uuuuuuuy culiao!?" Because that's what I heard.
  • + 3
 that superman at 1:45 was perfect form!
  • + 1
 Just needs better timing.
  • + 3
 Oh kurrrrrrrrrwa

 The coal rolling segment is taken from the point of view of the piece of shit coal roller, hence it implies that they knew exactly what they were doing, and posting it is glorifying it. Whomever posted that as part of the Friday fails should seriously lose their job, take that shit to your Qanon Trump shits coal site and keep it the f *ck off pinkbike.
  • + 5
 Calm down turbo.
  • + 4
 @GeoMurph5 it's a shuttle bus full of riders towing a trailer full of bikes up to the trailhead. The buses are all old and a bit shit. They're absolutely not over fueling on purpose.
  • + 1
 @PhillipJ: if that's the case, then I certainly overreacted. But intentional coal rollers can all go suck on their own exhausts.
  • + 1
 WTF are they doing with their bikes??!!! It is basically not made for ``that``!!!
  • + 2
 Come for the fails, stay for the KURWA!!!
  • + 2
 The last one really hurt me !
